2020 Sangyé Yoga School: Awakening Student Teacher Training
with cat alip-douglas
This training is for students who wish to deepen their understanding of the yoga practice as it relates to life in a closely mentored 5 months program. The training is suitable for those who are looking to transition into the role of a teacher, as well as those who may wish to simply deepen their own yoga & life practice.
Previous years have attracted students from the UK, Europe, USA and beyond. Out of town students must be able to commit to adding days either side of modules to complete practice requirement with cat. The training has reached capacity each year, advance application is encouraged.
This 200hr (300+hr with independent study required) course presents a foundation in yoga principals with a strong emphasis on vinyasa. Trainees are expected to maintain a daily meditation and a consistent (5-6 days a week) asana practice during their training. A set sequence will be provided almost 2 months prior to the start of the training and students will be expected to self-practice this sequence approximately 4x per week. Developing a self-practice, identifying and overcoming challenges are an important step in the student’s ability to teach and ultimately communicate with precision.
The course will include the following areas of study:
– Asana, bandha, drishti
– Applied anatomy
– Mechanics of fundamental assists
– Teaching methodology
– Ethics (yama/niyama)
The course will run over a period of 5 months, beginning June 24th & ending October 25th
Pre-course work will be provided on/around May 1st as preparation and to be completed for modules.
